The real face of Coca-Cola

Even though I hail from the Atlanta area and went to art school there back in the day, I think this article revealing the real face of the Coca-Cola Company needs to be spread around!

Apparently things go better when you snag lots of public money for your corporate projects but that’s only part of Coke’s story.

And don’t forget: it’s the real thing.

Ford Motor: tyranny of the bean counters

Ford employee until recently, Rob Eaton, is a Ford-lover from way back and comes by it naturally – it runs in the family.

Why? Because his grandfather had been Vice President of production in Dearborn and had worked closely with Henry Fords I and II.

Now Mr. Eaton is spilling the beans on his beef with Ford Motor Company. Beans and beef, you’ve got chili. And Rob Eaton has a pet Mustang parked inside his garage but now drives a different brand in something of a protest.

You see, he’s bitter about Ford’s downturn and relates it, in part, to years of endless tests done for no other reason than the boss’  boss ordered them…he calls it the ‘dictatorship of the bean counters.’

However, you may wish to call it something else:

This has to be added although not related to the above: NPR just announced that ‘Joe the Plumber’ will be in Israel for 10 days reporting on the crisis in Gaza…not for NPR but for a conservative website. Weird. And don’t say you’ve forgotten Joe already!

Juan Cole on Iraq’s shadowy coup plotters

Iraq: Coup Plot Foiled?

US Fires on Fallujah Shoe-Throwers

By Juan Cole

The news from Iraq on Wednesday shows that  the Iraqi government’s hold on power is fragile, and that it faces shadowy coup plotters from within and a continued guerrilla insurgency from without.

And in America we have only to look to Washington for our own shadowy coup plotters. But you knew that. Or should’ve done.

When Roubini speaks people listen

U.S. Should Enact $400 Billion Stimulus, Roubini Says

~
By John Brinsley

~
Roubini, who predicted the current financial crisis in 2006, said the
economy risks falling into “a self-fulfilling animal spirit recession that
is more severe than otherwise” because of the collapse of credit markets and
weak consumer and corporate spending.
http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article21107.htm

“Animal spirit recession”? That sounds like primal fear to me.

Now Stop It! Hoarding is the worst thing to do right now and I know yo Mama told ya that just because a bank’s chairman of the board hoards us off a cliff doesn’t mean you should, too.

545 Scoundrels on Capitol Hill

Here’s a link to an article by Charley Reese concerning the US House of Representatives (original publish date unknown.)

You’ll notice he refers to speaker of the House as Tip O’Neill but his sentiments still ring loud and true circa 2008 – even more so – which you can very well tell from the article’s title, ‘The 545 People Responsible For All Of U.S. Woes’:

http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article18568.htm

You know the massive and so-called ‘Bailout Bill’ and the fearfully touted ‘credit crunch’ we’ve been hit with these last weeks, months, years? Well, ‘Nothing in Politics happens by mistake – if it happens, you can be sure it was meant to happen.’

I believe words to that effect were spoken by FDR, but if I’m wrong, please correct.

You know I had never heard of or read Charley Reese’s article in October 2005 when I began blogging at Stars Over Washington, but its motto is:

‘Astrological comments on America, on Washington DC, and on the politicians who infest them.’

Well, more than ever it’s: INFEST THEM.

So if you doubted before that we have a major infestation in our capital eating away at our nation’s infrastructures, perhaps the Bailout Bill – or any number of outrages during the last 8 years and before – have changed your mind about the termites of Capitol Hill.

Fascist Coup in Progress: don’t look away, America

One of my favorite reporters, Larisa Alexandrovna, has an article at Huffington Post exposing the financial crisis, or market ‘meltdown’ if you prefer, as the fascist take-over that it is:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/larisa-alexandrovna/welcome-to-the-final-stag_b_127990.html

We-the-People may have only until Friday, Sept 26, to make our displeasure known concerning the ‘corporatism + state = fascism’ turn our nation has been led into before Congress acts on these plans that will forever transform America. Bush’s changes to date have set the stage, and the coup is almost complete.

You know, this plan of the global elite may actually explain the void-of-course Moon of Jan 20, 2009.

At noon on that day, when the expected Inaugural Oath should be taken, the Moon’s VOC status would indicate plans which one had no intention of fulfilling (or: events proceeding without interference – but that’s not necessarily what I’m thinking here based on the conditions mentioned in Alexandrovna’s article. But it could be some combination of both.)

So if you, like many others, have a “bad feeling” about what Washington pocket-liners are about to perpetrate upon us, please read the above-linked article and do what you can. Crimes have been committed by the powerful, and above all — 

Don’t look away! Czar Paulson is knocking at the door.

Bloomberg has an article on how Hank Paulson designed this plan for unchecked power with courts being barred from reviewing their actions…aka, fascism:

Sept 21 Update 3:55 am edt: look what I found: confirmation that Hank Paulson works for the devil – and posted on April 1, 2008 (written March 31):

Financial crisis: a list of who’s to blame

This is a fairly comprehensive list of culprits:

http://georgewashington2.blogspot.com/2008/09/let-me-provide-partial-list-of-entities.html

Is your name on the list?

Washington and the world’s financial ‘wizards’ are in process of announcing a “new world economic order” – and just when many people had honed their scoffing at the idea of a New World Order, too…how inconvenient to be so wrong.

And who can forget those halcyon days (four years ago) when the pope called for a New World Order?
